12:44 am
and planning committee met before the commission meeting and we had you know a really robust discussion on the presentation on chirtd care and i think that actually inspired more questions than answer and including you know the goals of charity care like you know in the time of the valuable affordable health care act and charity care was adopted 15 years ago and back then we didn't have the kind of sentiment as we do today those were some of the questions that came up and you know the presentations were actually coming to the commission and so i want to put on this to
12:45 am
thinking how we can actually create a partnership that really serves the buyer city and county of san francisco and including the most important part to reduce you know like health care for those who live in the city we also have some new and old contracts for your approval and it is all on the consent calendar with the contract report there are actually, two items that have been tabled for the next meeting for approval and those two are the medical contracts and services and the network within the contract report the 3 contracts that would be still need your approval will be the clinic works the data way and
12:46 am
the staffing. >> commissioners the reason i've taken off a clerical error the report needs to be clean before it comes to you. >> right there were typos. >> any questions. >> commissioner questions or comments to the report from commissioner chow? no comments all right. great we'll go to the next item >> we'll move on to item six the consent calendar consent calendar is before you you heard the two items that are removed from the consent calendar does anyone wish to extract any items if the calendar otherwise. >> yes. please within the contract report so under the consent calendar it will be all the items on the consent calendar that we need approval of within the contract
12:47 am
report which we have to items removed. >> yeah. it is the 9 approximately 8 millions on the pharmacy agreement; right? >> tip probation officers and 1, 3 and 1, 5 for the pharmacy kind of in the middle of the block of the first folder all contained in the contract report. >> any other questions? if not we should note that the walgreens program extends our 40 b program that required a link to each clinic only to all of the san francisco walgreens clinics under the b program is that not correct director barbara garcia
12:48 am
>> that's correct. >> that's a significant difference an, an added benefit to the program under 9 previously i nodded if you were at chinatown clinic and went down to only one walgreens and couldn't go to another walgreens you had to go to another one like castro that allows all the walgreens in san francisco to participate in this program. >> that was my only clarification we're prepared forever the vote. >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the calendar has been adopted unanimously. >> thank you, commissioners item 7 the dpw policy on the dpw facilities as you recall this was introduced at the last meeting. >> good afternoon, everyone. commissioners colleen i did not have anything additional as the secretary said the draft of the
12:49 am
policy at the last meeting it didn't require our package of the resolution only the affirmation. >> i was wondering if on this is more a technical question on the block that we have which on page 2 if you would get that if so r this this is yet california but for the process in the text and my two questions and which i believe are editorial under the section for dpw non-hospital building and director would review and submit recommendations and would it seems to me that the commission actually then makes also a
12:50 am
review and recommendation; right? to the board of supervisors as it says under item d. >> yeah. >> so the block should clarify that by putting that in and the board recommends. >> so i'll make that change. >> thank you and so the last - the bottom block expelling facility naming in connection with the gift of any amount u amount the director reviews and submits the remedies for final approval and here i believe under our section e it says that the commission will approve the request so the word approve needs to be there also and moves it to the board of supervisors. >> to be consistent with our text. >> that's right thank you for catching that commissioner.
12:51 am
>> so if those are accepted as the editorial correction ann another motion it in order to approve the column. >> so moved. >> there is a motion and a second is there further discussion on the policy? if not, we're prepared vote >> all in favor, say i. >> i. >> opposed? the policy is passed unanimously thank you thank you, commissioner i also note no public comment or questions item 8 is the resolution of the port naming the general clinic and richard a fine clinic. >> i'm not sure who is representing item - ms. >> if you recall a presentation at the last meeting. >> yes would you like to help refresh our minds on the items. >> there was a proposal on the small video last week of the
12:52 am
part of the richard fine to rename the general clinic at san francisco general hospital the richard h fine clinic and the drafts resolution in front of you for your consideration compliant with the - and the draft resolution is before you the motion will be in order. >> so moved. >> is there a second. >> there's a second commissioner sanchez. >> yes. >> yeah. i just like to make a comment pertaining to the naming of that clinic regarding dr. fine initially when it was brought before the jc c to be named by the department and in reference to the hourlong program in general many of us attended it was an
12:53 am
awesome tribute to a outstanding recommendation to the richmond h fine clinic i sort of took the wind out of my sails it was shifted to dr. richard fines people's clinic and i've been trying to get that out of high head why hadn't it bothered me i've known dr. fine when i joined and at 69 all the way through and couldn't think of a more outstanding position to have a clinic named at the san francisco general hospital to have it named that i guess somehow this sort of limitations his focus and maybe i'm just responding many of us were involved in the 60s and 70s
12:54 am
in coming back with the gi bill to berkley and at central nervous system that was part of our effort but dick fine was an extraordinary human being, he played a key roll in working with many of us at the general to form call the urban healthy was a key member it involved every single chief of service at the general from dr. tom surgery to dr. from that he had arctic's and we got them altogether and got the funding, etc. to not only increase the qualities of service based on the philosophy of our faculty and residents the outcomes in reference to what they're doing and dr. fine
12:55 am
played a critical role and continues to play a critical role so the funds many of the folks that served only the committees were some of the old guard the services of retired champions and many at the oil library at the san francisco general you saw all departments one or two some were submitted with replacements and this is a meaningful thought so i got a few comments from dick fine represents the finest of central nervous system so i want to interject that that needs to be said and something else that is important dick fine figure out through the urban health board to insure the minority students in potrero hill be bayview hunters point and the mission had opportunities through san francisco general hospital did this through the urban health
12:56 am
and navigate 4 videotapes we're working with the students and working with other groups to increase access to training and minority positions one the key people involved was francis a mexican-american who become a nurse and got her masters was the director of the urban health project and she was showing so impressed with his service unfortunately after they passed away left a scholarship for the students from the valley to go into nursing and paycheck to the services he provided to the community to me had doesn't say enough about him the reason i'm saying that in other types of awards like the staff like the julie the honorees for top
12:57 am
residency in each of the departments we think about what dr. discretionary review violence did but julie discretionary review violence he supported many the dean and the chancellor but his commitment was the quality of care at general hospital we had the rapid report and talked about who they were and why they're here so as i envision dick fine clinic i imagine their teaching the under graduates and staff what an outstanding position dick machine fine was in the memory of san francisco general hospital that was dedicated to serving i'll regardless of country or people anyway, i just want to share that i think that - he doesn't like to be so-called - i mean,
12:58 am
he marks to a difficult drum but worked within those organizations and programs to insure that access to qualify remains the flagship of excellence and the medication that no other departments in the central nervous system we feel some of us feel quite strongly it would have been great to keep it that way and the curriculum and the training of the future health providers would certainly reflect his philosophy and commitment to people of all walks of life that was what he was through the chair i apologize for getting into that but i'll support it so recommended but i do feel you know it could have been greater had we kept the tradition and used that as an ongoing teaching this is in my opinion.
12:59 am
>> thank you, commissioner because commissioner you can amend the resolution but i think i'd ask director garcia. >> yes. i asked the same question and know it is not just people so i asked the same question that request that went through dr. fine and that way i honestly think it takes away from what you said dr.ations and fine i believe that went through him and he supported that and in fact, he does walk to a different drum i wanted to honor the way he was and i the that through the staffer that presented it i appreciate our comments and puts the meaning that is the bigger title.
1:00 am
>> thank you. >> thank you. >> okay. i think we could note the reason it the name is in and unless commissioner you're entitled to amend the resolution okay. any further comments if not all those in favor of the resolution as presented please say i opposed any public comment no vision zero update. >> item 9. >> good afternoon, commissioners and director barbara garcia and secretary thanks for the opportunity i'm megan wear the director of the health and sustainability and also

1:03 am
will eliminate traffic deaths by 2024 it was introduced in 1997 had much success we needed to design a transportation system that protects the most vulnerable people using the transportation system including people walking and biking and seniors and young people i think in many ways that block is consistent with the mission of the department of public health i know this is you guys can you see the map hopefully in our handout i don't know about that slide since vision zero was adapted it is inspiring to see the national limit it growing hopefully, a map that shows the different cities across the country that adopted vision zero and in 2014 san francisco and

1:08 am
resources into vision zero which is appropriate three-quarters by grants and 25 percent from the general fund with respect to the data piece one key contribution that was identifying the high injury network that map identifies the 12 percent of street miles of fatality injuries to vision zero includes people in vehicles and riding bikes and vehicles this is in the contained how to effectively have the preservation initiative at its core of vision zero is the fundamentally addressing the issues of evaluated so in red the high injury corridors in communities of concern that are disproportionately low income communities and communities of color and community where people are walking and relying on transit and thor percent of the
1:09 am
